Movie poster 3

While creating my movie poster I wanted to place my roommates names above themselves and I believe that the way I arranged their names works well with the theme of the poster "comedy". This is a center alignment; I tired to center everything with the "Go Canada Go" flag in the back ground. I had to corp the photo a little bit also, since this was a photo taking by me; I had to cut a few little things out, so that my roommates are the focus point of the photo. I also changed the contrast a little to make the photo a little darker. Both the font with title and the subtitle at the bottom are the same; I used this font because it's a funny font; not a serious font, I also used a white background with the red letters to match each other. The audience is for age 18 and above, I placed a rated R in the bottom right because this is a film for college students and adults. This is a comedy film that will connect mostly with college students whom live the same life style.

I think my fonts and photo work well together; the dark and light colored red works well with the black and grey shadowed font that I used. I tired to have the title and subtitle triangle to the bottom to the film makers name, but I wasn't able to match the subtitle perfectly. The theme of my poster is a horror film; the reds and black represent blood and the black is gloomy. I think the little bit of white in the eyes makes the picture scary. I went to Wikimedia Commons and typed in Horror and this picture was the first to come up The Face; it worked just right with the theme I was trying to work with. The alignment I think goes from the top left to the bottom right toward the teeth. I face is the focus point of the whole poster. I used the same types of fonts that I think worked well with the theme. The audience is 18 and up; its a rated R film.

I choose the hands to be the focus point of my poster; it works well with the theme which is a documentary of the digital age. The hands are center aligned; I also hand to change the contrast because the hands at first were to dark, changing the contrast made the hands a little lighter. I also centered the title with the hands and also the two subtitles under the title to work downward to the hands all the way to the bottom of the poster. I found this photo in the Morgue files Hands. I used a light black color and a grey to make the poster look like a serious movie about someones life. The audience is 14 and up, its a movie about someones life. I also used a white font color for the bottom subtitle that I believe works well with the black, grey back ground.
